Raising Backyard Chickens with Learning the Frugal Life

It's Spring! I am welcoming Spring with open arms. I am looking forward to getting the garden planted, hanging clothes outside and spending as much time as I can out doors. Along with Spring for us comes new baby chicks. This will be my third year raising backyard chickens.

Are you curious about raising chickens in your backyard? Not sure where to start? I have decided to write a series of posts related to raising backyard chickens. I will write about how to get started, how to choose the right type of chicken, setting up a brooder, housing, diet and maintenance.

So whether you are new or old to raising backyard chickens, or just want to follow me on our journey I hope you find some helpful information in the upcoming posts.


  1. Looking forward to reading this! ;)

  2. I'm looking forwrd to your series on raising chickens in the backyard. My chiropractor is raising a few chickens in his backyard. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  3. I have kept pet chickens, but I have an advantage in that I am on a 10 acre hobby farm. Chickens are great I am happy to see people keeping them as pets too, I will never buy a battery hen egg again in my life after keeping chickens as pets - I also gave up eating chickens too!
